School: Encampment
Nickname: Tigers
Colors: red and black
Stadium: Unknown
State championships: None
Times worth remembering: The 1990 season — Encampment’s last — was the only season in which the Tigers won more than one game. However, both wins came over Farson, one a 14-12 win early in the season, the other a forfeit win at the end of the season after the Pronghorns had disbanded.
Times worth forgetting: The close to the 1990 season wasn’t pleasant. After the win over Farson, Encampment was shut out four consecutive times and ended its program at the end of the season.

School: Manville
Nickname: Panthers
Colors: blue and white
Stadium: Unknown
State championships: None
Times worth remembering: Manville’s best effort came in its undefeated 6-0 season of 1947, a season in which the Panthers beat Guernsey, Glenrock and Sunrise twice each. What set the Panthers apart was their defense, which gave up just two points in its first three games and gave up fewer than 11 points per game – a stellar defensive effort in the six-man football world. However, the victories might have come one year too early, as statewide six-man playoffs didn’t start until 1948.
Times worth forgetting: The Panthers’ final two seasons weren’t exactly encouraging. The team went 1-3-1 in 1952, Manville’s last full season, before canceling most of the 1953 season, save a 31-2 loss to Glendo.

School: Normative Services
Nickname: Wolves
Colors: maroon and silver
Stadium: Wolves Stadium
State championships: none
Times worth remembering: The Wolves’ two best seasons came in their first two years in pads. The 2000 team posted a 6-1 record in the regular season before bowing out to Southeast in the first round of the playoffs; the 2001 team went 6-2, then posted playoff road wins over both Burlington and Riverside before bowing to Cokeville in the state championship game.
Times worth forgetting: After its championship-game run in 2001, NSI had a disastrous 2002 season, finishing officially at 0-6. However, the Wolves only played three games, losing all three by wide margins, then forfeited three more after a case of food poisoning broke out at the Sheridan institution.

School: Worland Institute
Nickname: Unknown
Colors: Unknown
Stadium: Unknown
State championships: none
Times worth remembering: Only four victories by the Worland Institute, also known as Colter High, have been accounted for. Two came in 1957 — 19-13 over the Worland JV and 31-0 over the Lander JV. Worland Institute also knocked off Burlington 6-0 in 1959 and Meeteetse 7-0 in 1960.
Times worth forgetting: Pretty much every other game was tough for the Institute. The boys’ school squad had its toughest season in its final season, 1961, going 0-6 and losing every game by double digits.
